Onuku Backpackers Hostel Akaroa Reviews
Jan 15, 2004
This place is the next best thing to Paradise. We'd never seen anywhere so beautiful. If we'd have gone here first after landing, I don't think we'd have ever wanted to have moved on. We certainly would have been back again at some point in our holiday and would have booked the Stargazer hut, preferably on a clear night. Another option would have been to camp. You have got to take all your food with you that you would need as it is a 3 mile + trek back into town for the nearest shop.
We chose to kayak with the dolphins. Not everyone is lucky enough to see them. Swimming with them from a boat was also available but from talking to people, the kayaking sounded like the better choice.
The hostel itself is one on it's own with lots of quirky things to spot. Very laid back and very helpful.
